Leather and Suede FAQs
(Back to FAQ Topics)

Ink on a suede garment is a difficult stain to remove, even for an experienced suede cleaner. Dyes on suede and leather garments are not as color fast as one would desire. Often it is necessary to remove some dye along with the ink then replace the dye. This is a difficult process depending on the color of the suede. Be sure to ask your leather cleaner how they do with ink before intrusting them with the item. If this is a particularlly special piece I would recommend utilizing our Clean-By-Mail service such so that we may professionally care for your item. To see some samples of our ability to remove ink from leather please see our "Ink on Leather Before and After" booklet.

Most people don’t know it, but suede garments can be pressed. Either take it to a trusted dry cleaner or try it yourself if you are the adventuresome type. Use a pressing cloth (piece of muslin or cotton) and an iron on low temp with NO steam. Also using a suede brush may help. They can generally be purchased at a shoe repair store.
